I've been here a few days now but wasn't aware of this "introduce yourself" forum. So, anyway, glad to make your acquaintaince. I grew up being told that you never discuss religion or politics 'cuz it's supposedly impolite.

Never having been exactly a Miss Manners type myself, I found that I love to discuss/debate both religion and politics. I'm a former denizen of the *old* politics.com site that flourished in the late '90s but was closed down. After that, I despaired of ever again finding a really "good" debate site (i.e., where the people and the posts are equally interesting and thought-provoking, with just enough flaming and nose-thumbing to make it interesting, but not enough to reduce a good debate to an out-of-control, name-calling shouting match). It appears that maybe this site is what I've been looking for. Time will tell.

I look forward to "meeting" each of y'all.

y'all - you make it feel like home here. That is a word I understand. :)

A friend of mine is from Southern California and he says there are more cowboys there than here in Texas. Hard to believe.

Well, thanks for the welcome! I'm a native Californian but (believe it or not) I grew up among a lot of people who were transplants from Texas and the South, so I guess I talk more like they do than like more typical native Californians. If you heard me talk, you'd probably take me for a southerner. I say things like "aigs" for "eggs", that sort of thing...

Ventura County. You?

Oops, just noticed -- you're from Pasadena. Cool. Must do lunch sometime.
